Simultaneous analyses of cocaine, cocaethylene, and their possible metabolic and pyrolytic products.
A method was developed for simultaneously analyzing cocaine (COC), benzoylecgonine (BZE), norbenzoylecgonine (BNE), norcocaine (NCOC), ecgonine (ECG), ecgonine methyl ester (EME),Expand
Genotyping for DQA1 and PM loci in urine using PCR-based amplification: effects of sample volume, storage temperature, preservatives, and aging on DNA extraction and typing.
Urine is often the sample of choice for drug screening in aviation/general forensic toxicology and in workplace drug testing. In some instances, the origin of the submitted samples may be challengedExpand
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors in pilot fatalities of civil aviation accidents, 1990-2001.
INTRODUCTION Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are popularly prescribed for treating depression. With a few exceptions, these psychotropic medications are not approved by aeromedicalExpand
Melatonin: aeromedical, toxicopharmacological, and analytical aspects.
Melatonin, a pineal hormone present in the blood of humans and other species, has a distinct diurnal variation in its biosynthesis and, therefore, in its concentration. This variation has suggestedExpand
Blood carbon monoxide and hydrogen cyanide concentrations in the fatalities of fire and non-fire associated civil aviation accidents, 1991-1998.
Blood samples submitted to the Civil Aeromedical Institute (CAMI) from aviation accident fatalities are analyzed for carbon monoxide (CO), as carboxyhemoglobin (COHb), and hydrogen cyanide, asExpand
A death due to self-administered fentanyl.
A fatality resulting from the self-administration of fentanyl is described. The decreased was a health care professional with a known history of drug abuse. At the scene, a syringe partly filled withExpand
A multi-chemical death involving caffeine, nicotine and malathion.
Death of a 21-year-old man who was found in a shower stall in his residence is described in the study. At the scene, a 3/4 filled blue glass bottle labeled "Black Leaf 40" (an insecticide containingExpand
Exposures to carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide and their mixtures: Interrelationship between gas exposure concentration, time to incapacitation, carboxyhemoglobin and blood cyanide in rats
Carbon monoxide (CO) and hydrogen cyanide (HCN) are generated during aircraft interior fires in sufficient amounts to incapacitate cabin occupants. For typical post‐crash and in‐flight fires, minimumExpand
Substituted thiazolidones: selective inhibition of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide-dependent oxidations and evaluation of their CNS activity.
Eight 2-arylimino-3-(3-N-morpholinopropyl) thiazolid-4-ones were synthesized from the corresponding 1-aryl-3-(3-N-morpholinopropyl) thiocarbamides, characterized, and tested for their effects on theExpand
Distribution and optical purity of methamphetamine found in toxic concentration in a civil aviation accident pilot fatality.
Toxicological evaluation of postmortem samples collected from a pilot involved in a unique fatal civil aircraft accident is described in this paper. A one-occupant airplane was substantially damagedExpand
